When the clients reached out to us, they were living in a small cottage they had outgrown and were in desperate need of a larger, more functional home that reflected their values and lifestyle. They wanted a home that would allow them to relax, stretch out, entertain, and enjoy the California sunshine.

We helped develop a floor plan that was modern and open and a design scheme that maximized warmth and texture. The floor to ceiling glass sliders brought the outdoors in while the use of wood throughout created a sensual, cozy experience. Although an open floor plan informed the architecture, the owners did not want spaces that felt vast and cold. We added a double-sided fireplace column to break up the Great Room into distinct dining and living spaces. Unique art was placed throughout the home to mimic nature and to accentuate the home’s simple but sophisticated palette.
